I have been offering private drum lessons since fall of 1996. I am now based out of Arab Alabama which is 30 miles South of Huntsville.
Through the present and for years, I have primarily taught out of my home; but now, I have expanded and will work with students at their homes, if they have the equipment they need to be able and demonstrate and give a proper lesson.
This depends on what area they are wanting to pursue or learn in. I am a very firm believer in proper technique and fundamentals, whether a student wants to learn to read or learn by ear technique.
I also provide a lot of free materialif reading is involved, as well as other aids like videos, DVDs, etc.that can help the student enhance the learning experience. I also offer audibly recorded lessons and hope to expand soon to video in the very near future.
I have worked with a lot of students from 8 years of age to 40 and over. The majority of my work has been at the local level with students that are wanting to improve their skills for beginner through high school band, but I have also worked with a lot of students that just want to learn to play the drum setwhether it be as a pastime with bands, church or just whatever the student wants to achieve.
You can check my website for a more detailed information, especially with any past and present students, band directors, and other people that know me as a player and teacher.
Rates are based on the situation or if the student wants to travel to me, or I travel to them.
